In aid of Haiti
There will be a fund-raising shindig for Haiti in the Plaza España of Santa Cruz on Saturday, from 10 am until 3pm. This includes a market, and a raffle. At least 6 local bands are turning out. The amateur astronomy group will set up telescopes for observing the sun (safely!), somebody’s bringing “children’s activities”, and there’s a “Recycle Art” workshop. (I wonder if that’s Ruben Armichi?)

Anyway, this sounds fun, and obviously it’s for a very good cause, so I hope lots of people come.

The island has an orange weather alert for Sunday, and possibly Monday, with a forecast of heavy rain.

The petrol station in Barlovento is closed, owing to a death in the family. This means that there is nowhere to buy petrol between Llano Negro, in Garafía, and Los Sauces. If you’re driving around the north of the island, you’ll need about a quarter of a tank to get between these places.
